SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - Animal protection advocates are applauding President Barack Obama for proposing a continued federal ban on commercial horse slaughter in the U.S.
 
American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals senior vice president Nancy Perry on Tuesday urged Congress to adopt the proposal.
 
A measure approved earlier this year withholds money through September for Agriculture Department inspections necessary for slaughterhouses to process horse meat for human consumption.
 
The ban derailed a New Mexico company's plan to slaughter horses to export the meat to overseas consumers.
 
The president's budget proposed continuing the inspection funding prohibition through September 2015.
 
The last U.S. horse slaughterhouses closed in 2007 because Congress eliminated inspection funding. Plants in New Mexico, Missouri and Iowa sought to resume horse slaughtering when federal money was restored in 2011.

CHICAGO (AP) - Parts of Illinois reported a slow start to early voting, but Cook County's suburbs saw an uptick.
 
Cook County Clerk David Orr's office said Tuesday that 2,354 people cast ballots Monday, the start of early voting for March 18's primary. In 2010's primary, nearly 1,300 suburbanites cast first day ballots. In 2012, it was roughly 2,100.
 
Orr's office covers over 120 municipalities excluding Chicago. The region has previously reported a higher turnout than Illinois' average.
 
About 8 percent of Illinois voters cast early ballots in 2010 and 2012 primaries. In suburban Cook, 9.5 percent voted early in 2010. More than 11 percent did in 2012.
 
Orr's office says availability of suburban early voting sites might explain the turnout. There are 43. Chicago has 51.
 
Early voting ends March 15.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - A new report shows Missouri revenues were up slightly as the state reached the two-thirds mark of its budget year.
 
State figures released Tuesday show that Missouri's net general revenues had risen 2 percent through February compared with the same point the previous fiscal year.
 
Sales taxes were up by more than 4 percent and individual income taxes were up 2.5 percent. But those gains were partially offset by a growth in tax refunds.
 
The 2 percent overall revenue growth matches the forecast embraced by the Republican-led Legislature but is slightly less than what Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon's administration projected.
 
Missouri's 2014 budget year began last July and runs through June 30.

CHICAGO (AP) - Republican candidate for Illinois governor Kirk Dillard says he plans to "campaign like crazy" in the final weeks before the March 18 primary.
 
The state senator from Hinsdale spoke during a news conference Tuesday where he also discussed his plan to improve Illinois' economy.
 
The proposal includes capping state spending at this year's levels "for the foreseeable future," reducing the state's debt and repealing burdensome business regulations.
 
Dillard faces state Sen. Bill Brady, businessman Bruce Rauner (ROW'-nur) and state Treasurer Dan Rutherford for the GOP nomination.
 
Dillard says he plans to focus on his economic plan and improving Illinois schools during the campaign's final days. His campaign also launched statewide cable TV ads on Tuesday.
 
The candidates are scheduled to debate Tuesday and Wednesday in Chicago.

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Phil Allen and other Illinois gun enthusiasts eager for the right to publicly carry concealed handguns are celebrating as their long-awaited permits showing arrive in their mailboxes.
 
As a licensed concealed-carry instructor in Mascoutah east of St. Louis, Allen says receiving his permit Monday made him "ready to do a happy dance."
 
Allen's permit is among the first batch of roughly 5,000 that Illinois State Police are mailing under the state law passed last year. Illinois is the last state in the nation to allow the practice.
 
The agency says about 46,000 applications have been received so far.
 
While cheering the milestone of the mailings, Democratic State Rep. Brandon Phelps from Harrisburg says there's room for relaxing where concealed handguns may be carried.

Twenty-five-year-old Travis King of New Douglas was sentenced Monday in Madison County.  Authorities say that on Oct. 20, 2012, King drove into the back of a pickup truck at the interchange of Interstates 270 and 55 near Troy.
